I was out of the house early this morning for an appointment. I was going to say “bright and” but it was drizzling and overcast, with no bright in sight. It was walking… Continue reading

sunday slowly

One cannot live on chocolate chip cookies alone. Which is terribly inconvenient. It’s also the reason I’m leaving the apartment today (with Number Four as chaperone) to walk two blocks to the nearest… Continue reading

sunday slowly | gluten-free gingerbread cranberry muffins
